FRANKLIN AVENUE CONTEST: Eli "Paperboy" Reid at The Roxy
Free tonight? How about checking out rising star Eli "Paperboy" Reed at the Roxy? The Boston-born, Brooklyn-based singer, who's been described as a cross between Sam Cooke and Otis Redding -- with a bit of Wilson Pickett -- is there tonight, and we have a pair of tix.
It's simple -- first person to Tweet us at @franklinavenue wins the tix.
Reid is getting great press in the UK where his album, "Come And Get It," scored him the title of 2009 MOJO Breakout Artist Of The Year. Reid's album is released here in the States on Aug. 17.
